's the question about whether he's anti-israel or anti-semitic. that's preposterous. i haven't seen anything he's done with israel, he speaks some hard truths and says things that people think but don't say about what's going on in israel. >> josh, let's bring you in. the article is fantastic. you lay out the groups that would likely have strong opposition. i want to play what joe scarborough said this morning picking up on the comments that chuck hagel is outside the mainstream. >> this is being said, by the way, of a war hero. >> right. >> of a -- this is important. a war hero with shrapnel around with him. this is a guy. we know him from many different things but runs the atlantic council which is about as mainstream an organization as you will get in foreign policy. anybody out there wants to say that chuck hagel is outside the mainstream of foreign policy, i suggest they turn the mirror around on them. >> so josh, in your article as i said you pointed out some of these organizations who will come out and try to pressure lawmakers. joe says i suggest they turn the mirror back on themselves.

will be confirmed as the next secretary of defense. >> meantime, hagel is defending his past statements about israel and iran. he told his hometown newspaper in nebraska, quote, the distortions about my record have been astounding. there's not one shred of evidence i'm anti-israel, not one vote that hurt israel. he denied he is soft on iran, defending the stance against unilateral u.s. sanctions on iran saying they don't work and they just isolate the united states. joining me now, retired army colonel jack jacobs and also politics reporter for "roll call." colonel, i'll start with you in this discussion. many people talked about the dynamic of the confirmation hearing and you have john mccain who once praised chuck hagel, even saying that he could be secretary of state. now going after this war hero, two war heroes, if you will, together and what will likely not be a glorious moment but to give us all pause. what do you make of the dynamic here? much of the praise of john mccain and the credibility is the fact he served and same is said for chuck hagel? >> there's a lot of things at work here. one

that hagel has held with respect to iran and israel, would he, in fact, support the fullest protection of israel if there were any kind of a threat from iran that materialized? also, issues related to gay americans and would there be an issue with that, especially given the fact he's serving a democratic president? so they spent the time, they talked it out and very important indication that schumer will encourage his colleagues in the senate to go along and support the hague el nomination, as well. one of the sort of dances that's going to happen here is typically a former senator or senator put up for nominee in this way is confirmed pretty easily among friends in the senate who know them and have a personal history so to have resistance to chuck hagel has been one of the more unusual circumstances. you see the contrast talking about john kerry for sost. you have people in both parties coming forward supportive for his nomination. schumer and boxer, two of the prominent jewish american senators saying they feel confident that hagel will protect israel, they think that's important ste

an ad you mentioned. no on hagel as d as it is referred to. >> hagel is anti-woman, anti-choice. anti-israel. anti-gay and pro assault weapon. that's just not what we voted for in november. chuck hagel doesn't share our values. >> that's just one of the ads. you have this newly minted or freshly minted organizations that said it is a lab ral gay rights group and performed through a prominent firm. what is going on there? >> they left it so that we can only guess. if they really are prominent democrats and gay rights activists, they are very much under cutting here. one can only speculate that perhaps they are not everything they are cracked up to be and maybe they can say who they are. otherwise we are only left to speculate and it's suspicious and perhaps they wanted to leave it that way. >> worry that said with the suspicion and all the other concerns about these anonymous donors out there, could these ads possibly have an impact on the hearing tomorrow? we talked to a number of senator who is met with chuck hagel and will proceed with the confirmation that he answered the questions and co
